In what an American commentator has referred to as the Super Bowl of the southern hemisphere, today was Grand Final day for Aussie Rules Football in 2016. Played in Melbourne at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in front of 100,000 people in the stadium, another season came to an end. A disappointing finish for my team Hawthorn this year having won the competition the last three years, this years final was between the high flying Sydney Swans and the sentimental favourite for many people, the Melbourne based team called the Western Bulldogs. The Bulldogs beat the Swans 89-67 in a close game that was really exciting to watch. One of the great Aussie Rules traditions is the playing of the winning teams song at the end of each game. So here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JsGYihuW_k

Tomorrow night the National Rugby League (NRL) competition has their Grand Final in Sydney at ANZ Stadium between the Melbourne Storm and the Sydney based team the Cronulla Sharks. It should be a good game and I'm cheering on Cronulla to win.

Go doggies

Yes, I agree totally. I can't stand Sydney and it would have been a nightmare to have Swans supporters celebrating around me right now.



Moving on. Another exciting Grand Final tonight in Sydney at ANZ Stadium in the NRL where the Cronulla Sharks have won their first ever competition after 50 years. They have beaten the Melbourne Storm in a great game 14-12. So to celebrate, here is the Cronulla Sharks song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cfa-gp6RCWo

I'm a Swans fan and a Storm fan. Went to the AFL GF. No luck in either. And we lost to the saffers in cricket and rugby. Forget what the media says, this was the shittest weekend in sport for some time.
